Siddaramaiah writes to FM requesting inclusion of AIIMS in Raichur in budget

Noting that the proposal of establishing an AIIMS in Karnataka is pending for quite some time, Siddaramaiah said, “The state government, on consideration of possible locations, is of the view that Raichur is the most suitable place to establish an AIIMS. I would, therefore, request you to include the establishment of AIIMS at Raichur in the forthcoming Budget of 2024–25.”

The chief minister also enclosed a copy of his letter dated 17 June 2023, addressed to Union minister of health and family welfare Mansukh L. Mandaviya in this regard.

Raichur has witnessed persistent agitations led by various organisations and advocacy groups, emphasising the “crucial need” for AIIMS in the region.
